• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSXA SCASM runway and autogen

I added a SCASM runway to a scenery to provide runway lights for it over a ground poly. However, it has carved a large swath of autogen trees away from the approach end where there is supposed to be a fairly thick grouping of them.

Is there any workaround for this?

There have been a few discussions on this ... using a Dummy Scale or Ref point to trick the agn suppression.

ModelconverterX does these things for you automatically from memory.

Hi,

Those dummy reference point tricks are for custom ground polygons. I don't think it works for SCASM runways as well. Even XML runways do automatically remove autogen at both ends.

Right, I knew that XML runways will remove autogen trees on the approach end, but this one has cut a massive hole out of them, far larger than an XML rwy would

I think most developers have switched away from the scasm runways. I haven't heard new tricks about them.
